Wildcat Football Camps

Players now in 6th and 7th grade

Eagan Football and Eagan Trained are teaming up!! Come meet many of the coaches, spend some time learning about the weight room, and participate in the COMBINE! Football specific drills will be included while the focus will be on learning how to compete at the high school level.

The camp will be held during the last week of school and is in lieu of a camp during summer break. The hope is this will give them the most kids possible as most are already at school. They are looking into offering a bus service for those players who attend Black Hawk.

Camp dates: June 3rd – 6th (Monday – Thursday)

Time: 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM  Cost: $25 click to sign up

This will allow our players from Black Hawk to have time to get to Eagan High School.
